Sound not working

I have tried refreshing the page, re-opening the browser, and restarting my computer and I still cannot hear anything from this web page. Other pages work with sound just fine, only Duolingo has this problem. I am using Chrome. Anyone else have this issue or know how to fix it? I cant continue to progress because every "listen" question I'm forced to skip and get wrong.

Same happened to me with chrome, clear cookies and cache.


Just cleared cookies and cache, re-opened browser, and tried with both headphones and speakers and still nothing..... When I click the "play" icon, it shows a little loading thing in the corner for half a second, but nothing happens.


That's the same thing I'm experiencing. The sound works fine when I record something and play it back, but that's the only time the sound will work. I, too, have tried everything. I'm working on Firefox.


I'm having just the opposite problem I hear the sounds fine through my speakers but duolingo does not recognize my microphone. I use the same microphone with Dragon NaturallySpeaking, in fact I'm dictating this, but duolingo not seem to hear it at all. I have the newest version of Adobe flash player and the plug-in I've tried refreshing and rebooting it doesn't help. If anybody has any suggestions I really appreciate it I'm using Windows XP Pro Firefox with all the newest updates.
